Back-stitch & Blackwork

Most of my fellow cross-stitchers didn't enjoy doing the back-stitches.. Well, I'm quite the opposite, I love back-stitches!

And today, I find my long-time piece I've done few years ago. It's a blackwork piece. Blackwork is (almost) the same as back-stitches. Just arrange them in a lovely pattern and voila...! This piece can express how much I love to back-stitch :)

I haven't finished this piece completely, I need to assemble a strap to make a tote bag.
Fingers crossed, hoping to fix my sewing machine soon!

One Year Tablecloth :)

With a high determination, I finally finished cross-stitching my tablecloth…!!

I started on July 12,2010 and finished at July 16, 2011… Well, I’d say I couldn’t make it finished on time since I targeted that it will be finished exactly in one year… (one year? a great target… NOT)

I was one day behind schedule because I was suddenly scheduled to do a project presentation at Ministry of Industry in Jakarta on Thursday. But I’m glad my tablecloth is done so I can work on a new project.

I'm back...!!!

How time flies... It's weekend again!

The past few weeks have been so complicated and hectic..
Lots of paperwork and proposal at the office, bad internet service, and also kids' final exam... *phew*

Now, it's time to relax and do some stitching... My internet connection is fixed, but it's still going on and off in a while.. I've managed to finish my tablecloth before it reaches its 1st anniversary of being an UFO...

This is the last time I left my WIP..

My progress so far..

It's 80% finished and still advancing...

Happy weekend everyone!!
